Beginners Guide to Full & Defined Lips

Rupinder's lip tricks:

1. Choose a deep-toned lip liner (mauves and soft brown tones are best.) Follow your natural lip line and slightly overdraw if you would like a distinct finish.

2. Fill your entire lip line with liner and soften the cupid's bow.

3. Take a pencil or lipstick at least two shades lighter than your liner.

4. Concentrate the lighter colour on the inner third of the top and bottom lip.

5. Use your favourite lipgloss as a plumper for an extra full effect. Apply the gloss in the very middle of the lip but ensure you don't cover the lighter area.

6. Use your favourite contouring product and highlight shades and apply to your cupid's bow to draw light and attention.

7. On a fluffy brush, lightly dust the contour under the bottom lip for a shadow.
